Japanese company KAI, who makes our favorite poultry shears, also produces a line of kitchen graters: the Pure Komachi Series, which has sharper cutting edges than most brands because its stainless steel is precision-cut using an innovative etching method. The Fine Grater & Zester
, which comes in a cool slate gray hue, shreds food similar to a wand-style rasp grater, but with finer, more delicate results—it's also easier to clean. We especially like it for a dusting of lemon zest or nutmeg over a dish. The ergonomic handles are made of plastic treated with a nonslip coating that wraps around the whole device to form a grippy base at the other end, which is helpful if you choose to brace the grater against a surface.
